Ripe cherries delivered to mill, where cherries are graded, sorted, de-pulped (3 disc Mackinnon & I disc for undergrades) and then double fermented (12-18 hours dry, 12-18 hours wet) The parchment is then rinsed thoroughly and sorted in washing channels, and then is placed onto raised African drying tables. The drying period generally lasts for up to 2-3 weeks, until moisture level reaches 12%. The coffee is turned by hand at regular intervals, and the raised beds allow for air circulation around and under the coffee.
